TeamSTEPPS® Long-Term Care Version

The Essentials Course highlights the key principles and concepts of TeamSTEPPS (Strategies & Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety). The Essentials Course can bring you up to speed quickly about improving resident safety by implementing TeamSTEPPS.

 The Long-Term Care version of the TeamSTEPPS Essentials Course is based on a PDF Version [ PDF file - 864.76 KB] developed for hospital settings. The pocket guide is available for download or can be ordered from AHRQ's Publications Clearinghouse (AHRQ Pub. No. 06-0020-2). Although the text uses the term "patient" rather than "resident" and examples are from hospital settings, the guide can be useful for long-term care staff.
